HBO Go Comes To iPhone And iPad

HBO Go - iPhone and iPad app

HBO has just released an iPad and iPhone app for HBO Go, the pay channels web service, which is part of the cable industry’s TV Anywhere strategy to make content available online to its subscribers.

HBO Go app gives iPhone and iPad users access to over 1,400 HBO shows, including HBO original programming, hit movies, sports and comedy.

With the HBO Go app you can do the following:

  • Keep up with your favorites. Watch everything you love about HBO, including HBO original programming, hit movies, sports, comedy and every episode of the best HBO shows, including True Blood®, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire®, Entourage®, The Sopranos®, Curb Your Enthusiasm®, Sex and the City®, The Wire® and more. Plus, get bonus features and special behind-the-scenes extras!
  • Take it with you. Get instant access to HBO GO whenever you want, wherever you are—and never miss a moment of your favorite HBO shows.
  • Make it your own. Create a customized Watchlist to catch up on all your favorite HBO shows and hit movies at your convenience. Plus, set a Series Pass® to automatically load your list with all the HBO Original Series you love.
  • Enjoy more HBO. Get even more of your favorite HBO programming with HBO GO—FREE with your HBO subscription through participating television providers.

HBO Go is free but there is a catch, it can be used by users with HBO subscription through participating television providers, which currently does not include Time Warner and Cablevision. All Things Digital reports that Time Warner Cable is working on a deal; while Cablevision won’t comment.

Unfortunately, there is no option to subscribe to HBO Go if you’re not a cable customer of one of the participating providers and app is only available to users in the US.
